Today we are pleased to offer this superior caliber 89 IWC. It is full size, measuring 35mm in diameter. The watch presents in gorgeous restored condition and presents as mint on the wrist. The dial has been expertly refinished and the case presents beautifully.
The gold markers and hands give the watch a dressier look than plain steel.
Powered by one of the most highly-regarded manually wound movements ever made, talked about in the same sentence as Pateks, the watch is rich in technical details.
For those unfamiliar, the caliber 89 movement was designed by IWC's renowned technical director Albert Pellaton.
The movement has been fully serviced and is keeping time perfect time.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
